First of all I just want to clarify that I’m not a web developer nor a web designer. In this post I just want to list the things that what makes a blog or site really annoying and create a first bad impression for most people.
Popups – I know that most blogger somehow just want to make money out of their blog. Because of that they tend to accept the pop ups service from advertising sites that they join for them to earn additional money. But come on! you and everyone know that pop ups are just one of the most irritating things that you will encounter around the net. It just make your blog look spammy and low quality. So if you’re not really that desperate to earn money then please avoid putting a popup ads or pop ups subscription form asking for your visitor to subscribe. Trust me most people really hate popups!
Lots of big images or No images at all – One big image per article is acceptable but if you do it more than three without even minimizing it’s original sizes then I think your doing a big mistake. Big images just worsen your page loading time and that what makes your reader get a first bad impression about your site, so it is much better if you minimize it. I believe bigger and lots of images in an article is only acceptable if your running a photography, travel, food or personal site but if not then better avoid doing that. On the other hand, having no images at all in every bit of your article is much worse. Having no images to all of your article just make your blog look so boring especially if you write almost a thousand word per article without even putting one. Sometimes good images explain a million words so its better you use one at a time.
Too many advertisements – Lots of newbie blogger or webmaster believe that if they put more ads in their site it also mean that they can also have a big chance to earn money. But this belief is totally wrong because the more ads you put in your site the more chance that you will also lose your valuable readers for losing your credibility and getting annoyed by your messy ads all over your page. It can also worsen your chance to improve your page rank because putting a lot of external links or OBL (outbound link) in your site just make you lose page rank juice that coming to your site from the backlinks effort you made. I should say that there’s nothing wrong in putting an ads just to earn money but please think about what you can give to your readers first than putting a lot of ads in every available space in you page just hoping for them to click on it.
